Great location just of Nelson Mandela Square, with a choice of both inside and alfresco dining. Great menu with lots of choice. I have been to Pigalle twice on this 10 day trip and it was very good on both occasions. Service is very good, food is delivered in a timely fashion and the quality is excellent. Well worth a...

Upon entering I knew we were in for a special treat. Each course served brought smiles of satisfaction. Service began with a wonderful amuse bouche from the Chef. There were six in our party and no one had any complaints. Our server, Felix assisted by a very capable team took excellent care of us from starter to dessert. I thoroughly... More

I had oysters from Namibia, prawns from Mozambique and an excellent white wine from South Africa. What more could one ask for! The place is very busy and for a good reason. The food and the service are excellent. Best to book if you can. I will for the next time I visit.

I am fortunate enough to have been dining at Pigalle since they opened. My family and I typically dine here 2 or 3 times a week when we are in Johannesburg. I guess that we are a little fanatical about how good Pigalle is! Every single time, the entire team manages to exceed our expectations with regards to the food,... More

This has become our annual spot for year end lunch with my colleagues. They have some of the best seafood and steaks, comes with the price tag though. Service can be very slow as they seem to get very busy during the December period. Pigalle Sandton makes for a great spot to wine and dine your better half or family... More

This was a great surprise. We had been told food was good but had no idea how good. They served a small cup of coconut, ginger, butternut squash soup first that was absolutely incredible. I had oysters that were cultivated and they were ok but not great. My wife's Ceasars salad was the same. Yet when the lobster Thermador came... More

Located in the Michelangelo Towers at the Nelson Mandela Square, Pigalle Sandton has become a benchmark in urban-chic dining where government and business men and women swarm to wine and dine like kings and queens. The venue reflects the Goncalves brother's Mediterranean flair for life with its sumptuous vibe, specializing in exceptional seafood and superb international cuisine. There is something extraordinary for every palate at Pigalle with a sensational menu including impeccably prepared meat, fish and poultry dishes. Pigalle Sandton showcases elegant decor which sets a chic, up market ambience as well as successfully exhibiting and almost decadent yet exceptionally impressive urban-Baroque flavour. Lavish imported Italian fabrics, rich timber and gilded frames complete the opulent look and feel, while the smoking section boasts a breezy balcony with panoramic vistas of the Sandton CBD skyline.
